ROB JAP IN CHINATOWN Plucky but Futile Struggle of One Man Against Three. PATROLMAN GETS A TARTAR Finally Overcomes His Man, Who Carried Gun and "Dope," but Two Accomplices Escape. Just before the first streaks of dawn were &odgins through the narrow alleys and lighting up the darkened byways of China town early yesterday morning a Japanese •lipped quietly out of the doorway of No. 26 IhtJ Ptrcet and started to walk rsjjMly west. He was small and win' and well dressed, a gold watch chain showed in his waistcoat and two rings were on his ris^t. hand Evidently he was well off in this world's goods an«! be bore other indications or prosperity unusual in that neighborhood. He bad not taken a dozen steps before he was spotted by three roughly clad men. who had been awaiting his appearance in a neighboring hallway. As the little Jap anese pattered off down Matt street with q-jirk. nervous step?, the thr»>e men followed liJm 'swiftly/ overtaking him just as .he reached the corner of Pell street where It Joins Mott. The struggle that followed was carried on in silence but for the shuffling of the men's heels or. the sidewalk and. the grunts of the Japanese, as he felt an iron hand close about his windpipe. The- «eel musc'.es of the Oriental, trained in the effective jiu jitsu attack, broke the hold of the bulky man who had leaped on htaa from behind, and Sung him over to the curb. As the Japanese faced about to meet the attack of another of his assailants, who was running in on him with head bent, the third man of the attacking party crept up behind him and swung his arm above his V.cad. then brought it down with stunning force on th» Japanese's neck. With the Mow the little foreigner reeled and fell to the street. Still Fighting When Robbed. The three men immediately bent over the Japanese and began to go through his pockets. The gold watch and chain, the two rings and a roll of bills amounting to SSS were rapidly taken from the helpless little man. who still continued to struggle against the overwhelming odds. Satisfied that they had gleaned everything of value from their victim, the men started to run, dodging from one side 01 the narrow street to the other, as is the custom of the underworld in Chinatown. The sound of their footsteps echoing through the musty streets fell on the ears of Lieutenant Haerle and Patrolmen Judge and Efennesy. of the Elisabeth street station, who were standing m the opposite comer. The two patrolmen cut across the street end tried to head off two of the men. but their speed was not equal to that of the pursued, and they were soon outdistanced, Usa hichw-iyroen losing themselves in the maze of short alleys and ramshackle hovels on Pell street.- Lieutenant Haerle sprinted after the third man and gained on him easily. Within the Space of a hundred yards he grappled with tOm and threw him to the ground. The fellow gained his feet again and fought ■with Haerle fiercely, being more than a match for him in physical strength. The ■ _ulfllt was the more skilled, however, when it came down to the trick of foot tripping, and soon had his man down on bis back again. As be lay on th» sidewalk with Haerle bending over him. the man pulled a large revolver from his shirt front and pushed the muzzle close against the lieutenant's face and pulled the trigger. Instinctively. Haerle jammed one thumb between the hammer of the weapon and the plunger and when tbe hammer descended it lacer ated the finger, but prevented the discharge cf the weapon. Officer Disarms His Man. Haerle and the highwayman now fought for the revolver, and after a bitter (struggle the officer succeeded in wresting the weapon from his prisoners hand, but only after he had thrown himself on top of the man ar.d had fairly choked his breath off. Haerle had been roughly used in the bat tle, and. besides having his uniform almost ripped from his body, was suffering from a. severe gash on one knee and the injured hand. His wounds had to be treated by an sjmtmtai • surgeon. Taken to the station house, the prisoner gave his name as William Metz. a laborer. living it No. 226 East 37th street.

It is believed that the man is a cocaine seller. The Japßnes* pave his name as Masco Kato. a butier in the home of William H. Russell, of EDglewood. Although he had not had much opportunity of seeing his as sailants, Kato -went to the station house, ard identified Metz as one of his attackers. The Japanese told the police he had been to No. 26 Mott Ftreet to visit a cousin of his, and that just after he left the houso the thre? men had set on him. He jpicked Metz as the man who had stolen his watch, which, together with the roll of bills, wa.« found on the sidewalk near where the hold up had occurred. In the Tombs police court three charges were made against Metz— the first, for car rying a concealed weapon, ;or which he was held in &00 bail for examination; the second, for attempted robbery, and the third, for assault. On the last two charges Metz was held in a total of $5,(00 bail for examination to-morrow. The prisoner re fused U> make anj- statement.

She is L little woman, but possessed of grit and : muscle, which Eugene Pcrst, of No. 19 Jcf ! ferson street, Williamsburg. can vouch for. While the members of the family were jt.iking an afternoon nap yesterday perst I descended the rear fire escape from the roof Lad entered the Morgan apartments through j a window. Mrs. Morgan was in a room ad joining the kitchen, while the other mem bers of the family were in the front of the house. She was awakened by the noise made by Perst and saw him In the act of prying open the window. I-istead of fainting or going into hysterics Ifrs. Morgan reached over and picked up a large, thick hickory stick. With that under the covers she awaited developments. She leigneri sleep when Perst crept softly into che room. He went about the house pick ing up trinkets and other things that he could put in his pocket, and had just taken Mrs. Morgan's pocketbook. containing ?13, when sli* 3 jumped out of bed. Perst had Us back to Mrs. Morgan, and she crept up behind him and dealt him a blow that brought him to his knees. He tried to regain his feet, but shfe laid the stick across his shoulders and back in such a manner that he bf-gg-ed for mercy. She made him stand up and empty Ms pockets, a*d then marched him downstairs. When Patrolman Seisler, of the Vernon avenue station, arrived. Perst begged to be taken away from the woman. When he was arraigned in the Gates ave nue police court he looked as if he had gone through a thrashing machine. His clothes were torn and his fare was a mass of bruises. Tie told the magistrate that he hoped never to encounter another woman like Mrs. Morgan. Magistrate Harris thon held him In $1,000 bail for a further exam ination. LAUDS THE EX-PRESIDENT Dr. Broughton, of Georgia, Also Criticises Church Work. The Rev. Dr. Len G. Broughton, of At lanta, preached at the Fifth Avenue Pres byterian Church yesterday morning on "The Place of the Christian Church in the World's Redemption." Dr. Broughton severely criticised the Christian Church. "Where is the Church," he said, "with all its millions and its opportunities? When a girl goes bad ihe Church supports rescue mission? for her and weeps and cries over her : but nothing was done for her at the beginning that carried with it the saving gra<-<=- that would liave made her downfall 1 impossible. "The best investment for philanthropists to-day is not endowing great universities — we have enough of them now — but the greatest opportunity of the Church is to provide institutions to-day, for instance, where poor, unfortunate men afflicted with tuberculosis in its incipient stages could be saved for thf-ir families and themselves. We have robbed Gud and we must pay It back. "I":* 5 greatest truth I have ever known was when Abraham Lincoln said that God had a definite work for him to do ajid a work that he had committed to no other man to do. In our lives there is success if we follow God's scheme for vs — failure only out of it. To some of you some things I have said may sound like socialism, but if it is I pray that God will give us a Chris tian socialism that will sweep this country. Wherever there is work to do, God is there, and I thank God that there is an ex-Presi dent of the United States that does not think it undignified to be 'there. 1 " BOY SEES FEET, CALLS COP "Jag" Plea Frees Prisoner, but Magistrate Compliments Lad.

FIRST EMPTIES HEN NEST Next Took Bossy and at Last Steals $60 from Farmer — Chase Him in Vain. Ko-Koe. the handsome Alderney cow which grazes in the rich fields of Mr. Fran cisco, a farmer, one mile from the village of Caldwell, N. J., is much put out to-day, because her hospitality was abused to the extent of five quarts of her best milk, taken from her under false pretences. Ko- Koe hangs her head and looks sheepish and chews her cud dolefully, the while she ruminates on the deceit of man. In his ample farmhouse Francisco storms and fumes and smites his thigh, and mut ters things beneath his breath. There ia a feeling of stifled revenge and longing for vengeance In the Francisco household, even the chickens in the yard strut about with expressions of mortification on their faces, while the pigs in their pen grunt disdain fully and squint suspiciously out of their eyes. At the hour when chanticleer proclaimed the morn yesterday and the early worm turned In his grave in fear of the voracious chick, there was a violent eruption in' the hayluft in the Francisco barn. Wisps of hay were tossed violently upward, a pair of feet dangled tentatively in the air and soon there issued forth the body of a man. His hair was long and matted and hayseed clung tenaciously to a long unmown set of whiskers. Suddenly the field of whiskers was rent by a chasm and the owner of the body stretched himtselS in a prodigious yawn, The Adonifl of the haymow was about to leave his bed of slumber and bestir himself for the day's work. The single suspender which prevented his trousers from gathering about his ankles was flipped quickly from one shoulder to the other, the forelock was whisked away from his eyes, and the day's toilet was complete. Now to satisfy his craving for the good things of life. The barnyard visitor surveyed himself in the brightness of a milk paii hanging on the wall, touched his hair deftly here and there, and nodded pleasantly at the reflection in the shiny tin. Life was sweet and the world held much of promise— Ho! for the eats : Robs Hen Nest First. How daintily the sun shone down on tlv« quiet bucolic stretches of Francisco's acres! What a symphony of sound broke forth from the throats of hen and rooster, duck and pig — ah ! it was a day to live for. The barnyard Romeo skipped quietly from the shelter of the barn and cast a cautious eye across tho yard, where the Francisco household wa? Ftiil enmeshed in slumber. The anticipation engendered by the sight of what he witnessed vhetted the tramp's ap petite. Surely it were fitting to begin his breakfast with a couple of eggs, and fresh eggs were a luxury even to a man of. wealth, doubly were they so then for a knight t>f the highways. Down on hands and knees, to the place where the fruit of the hen grew in the greatest profusion, shuffled the tramp. Two skilled hands picked out the choicest of Leghorn and Brahma eggs, and a liquid gurgling told of the passage of the costly delicacy down the robber's sinewy neck. The breaking of his fast was beginning most auspiciously, and the tramp rubbed the spot beneath his waistband with a tender touch. As he emerged from the lien roost the sight of "Ko-Koe" browsing peacefully in a nearby field made the long haired stranger gulp and smack his lips. Here were food and drink in abundance, to be had for the asking— and the Lord helps them who help themselves. This was a comforting bit of Scripture and it appealed mightily to the man. He approached the cow with a con ciliatory hand outstretched before him, while he murmured gently, "Co, Bossy; co. Bo*fv; nice old Bossy!" In a manner calculated to disarm tiie suspicions of any trusting cow. From the way in which he swung the bright milk pall from his arm' and placed the milkman's stool "Ko-Koe" felt sure that this was the new hired man. She submitted in humility and appreci ation to the expert, who filled the pall with creamy milk. After the tramp'E thirst had been satis fied he ambled back to the barn, where he surveyed a pair of overalls and a waist coat, tho property of Francisco. A sus picious swelling in the pocket of the waist coat was skilfully reduced by the tramfi. who extracted therefrom a roll of $61 in crisp bilL-. A heavy gold watch and chain were also lifted from another pocket, and the man felt easier. As he stepped out into the yard he saw Francisco walking to the far end of the barnyard, greeted noisily by the chicken.-, the pigs and the ducks. With hat In hand. the Ion? haired one approached the fanner and told him in excited tones that hi:- wire had just been bitten by a snake. Francisco thanked the polite strantrer in a hurried yell and set forth for the house. The tramp looked at the frightened farm er, smiled, and set out across the .'oni fielu". tu where the woods beckoned hi:n. When the farmer found his wife still asleep, with no signs of a snake in the room, he scratched his head and was puzzled. Then he slowly made his way to the field and found the stranger had dis appeared. Xext, his steps lei to the barn, where he found his clothing lying on the Boor, with the pockets emptied. Within the next five minutes Francisco and two of his hired men were on the trail, armed with guns and pitchforks. They searched the fields and the highways, but returned home empty-handed and vowing vengeance. Hereafter Francisco will tdeep in lsi= barn, and he will have a hot wel <-ome for all strangers who cross his threshold.
